Mosquitoes are one of the biggest nuisances we have in this area. They can transfer many harmful diseases to us and our animal friends. These diseases include west nile virus, yellow fever, malaria, encephalitis, dengue fever and others. Our four legged friends can contract heartworms from just one mosquito bite. If you enjoy the outdoor spaces of your home, then chances are that you have encountered these pests. Mosquitoes can render these outdoor spaces useless. Fortunately, there is a solution.
The most important way a home owner can reduce the amount of mosquitoes on their property is to not allow any standing water. Standing water can accumulate on objects such as buckets, garbage cans, clogged roof gutters, and equipment covered with tarps. By not allowing water to collect in these areas you can eliminate the places where mosquitoes lay their eggs, disrupting their life cycle. When this alone does not stop your mosquito problem, Preferred Pest and Turf offers two unique solutions for mosquito management.
Our most popular mosquito management solution is our monthly mosquito lawn treatments. We treat the entire lawn and any vegetation on a monthly basis. By applying product to the areas where mosquitoes rest, we can effectively gain control. These treatments will eliminate mosquitoes, gnats, flies, no-see-ums, spiders, fleas and ticks allowing you and your family to use your outdoor spaces. We use the safest and most modern products which are pet and child friendly, producing the results that your neighbors will be jealous of. Give us a call if you want to take back your outdoor areas for your family to enjoy.
We also offer mosquito misting systems that are permanently installed on your property. Professionally installed to blend in with your property, these systems automatically apply pyrethrum around the perimeter of your property. The applications are on a timed basis, generally around dusk when mosquito activity is at its highest. However, there is also a manual option allowing you to treat the area before a function. Mosquito misting systems will effectively rid the area of mosquitoes and other pests.
